Once Dr. Hughes extracts the needed stem cells, he uses specialized techniques to separate the cells from the rest of the substances in the marrow, fat, or membrane. This creates a high concentration of cells ready for injection into the treatment area.
Dr. Hughes numbs the area of injection to ensure your treatment is pain-free and comfortable. After the injections, you can go home to rest for a day or two before returning to your usual activities.
Over the course of several weeks, stem cells begin to develop into new, healthy tissue to repair or replace the damaged tissue. As stem cells continue to develop, you should experience a significant reduction in painful joints and muscles and begin healing from injuries to your tendons, ligaments, and cartilage.
